Welcome Jon, as long as you promise not to make fun of cruisers with jerry jugs on deck. Have a close look at the avatar.

Nah, Rick - that dinghy swaying in the breeze is a far greater offense... (grin)

Are you gonna be in the Abacos all winter, or moving about a bit? Perhaps our paths will cross, but I have no idea where I'll get to this year, yet...

best regards, nice to see you again...

The dinghy doesn't budge an inch. Four ratchet straps. I'm usually in the Exumas and Jumentos and Long Island. Every two or three years I head north through the Abacos. Just to remind me what Miami Beach is like.

So, are you in Georgetown? We're anchored in Kidd Cove currently...

PS Rule 62 had both lifelines and jacklines (that yellow strap on the port side is a jack line - we have the same aboard Flying Pig) WRT another post in this thread...

I wish... I'm up in Boston, and it's only 19˚F.... I was down in Georgetown this past spring, getting a boat from Stocking Island and moving it back to Marion, Mass.

BTW, if Rule 62 had jacklines, I am wondering whether Laura and the rest were clipped in or not and if not, why not.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

What does this have to do with the Sinking of Rule 62? Should this thread be closed?

I personally don't see the problem SPC.
SD's post.....the latest.....directly addresses the sinking of Rule 62.

Yeah a couple of posts prior to that were somewhat of an aside, but I hardly see it as a derailment.

Yeah, I need to start posting on another sailing forum like I need a hole in the head, but things have been a bit slow elsewhere these days, my old buddy Jeff H assures me this a cool place to hang out...

I'll try to tear myself away from the keyboard after Christmas, however, hopefully head south for a few months - assuming I can get out of here before Barnegat Bay freezes over, that is... (grin)
Aren't we all ?

SPC .... every thread inevitably drifts downwind a tadge. As Chall says, as long as it doesn't head offshore we should be OK.

Pay attention, guys!

Hesper has given us some good second-hand data points in #408 above. My sources indicate Hesper is not far off.

If true, how does this information change assumptions / conclusions reached thusfar?

Is an incapacitated captain responsible for the decision-making on the boat? It was drilled into me in the Navy that the captain is always responsible, but this wasn't the U.S.S. (or H.M.S.) Rule 62. Do we hold yacht skippers to the same standard as captains of warships?

If Laura was partially handicapped, should she have been given a berth on this passage? Is it plausible that not having full use of an arm would have contributed to her tragic loss?

YES, yacht skippers are responsible for their crew and boat

I find it unfair to make such comment! When a boat is thrown on the reef with big waves, it is a matter of luck to be able to survive.
